    Kolo Toure signs for Celtic

    London - Ivory Coast defender Kolo Toure will be reunited with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers after joining Scottish champions Celtic on Sunday.

    Toure agreed a one-year contract to become Rodgers' latest signing since he took charge at Celtic earlier in the close-season.

    Rodgers also signed Toure for Liverpool in 2013, following the centre-back's previous spells at Manchester City and Arsenal.

    Toure, 35, will thrive in the Scottish Premiership and be a big asset to Celtic, according to Rodgers.
    "I brought Kolo into Liverpool to add that bit of experience and help to the centre-halves there at the time," Rodgers told Celtic's website.

    "You saw from his impact there and in particular last season, he was a very important player for Jurgen Klopp towards the end of last season, playing in the Europa League final.
    "He was outstanding in the big games for me when I was there. He looks after himself, he's a wonderful professional and he has good experience."With a lot of young players in our squad, he can really help them and he can be of great assistance for the likes of Scott Brown, who is a wonderful leader."But he needs support and help around him as well. It will be nice for Scotty to have someone behind him who has that real big-game experience. Kolo can do very well for us."
